Get your COVID-19 vaccine and earn cash
As we shared earlier, Asante will award $200 (minus required tax withholding) to all eligible employees who complete the vaccination series for COVID-19.
The intent of this COVID CASH program is to increase the overall percentage of the population vaccinated against the virus, especially those working in health care.
The more of us who are vaccinated, the closer we are to achieving herd immunity in our communities — and protecting each other and those we serve. The program ends June 30, so if you haven’t already scheduled your vaccine, you can easily do so in MyChart.
- You must be an active full-time, part-time or flexible Asante employee at the time you receive at least the final dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
- You must be an active employee at the time of the payout.
- Those enrolled in other incentive programs (besides PEAK) are not eligible.
How do I get the incentive?
Employees are required to complete the “COVID CASH” questionnaire through MyChart, which requests that your vaccination record be shared with Asante Human Resources. Please answer the question at the prompt, then click “Yes” to be added to the list to receive the incentive. If you do not yet have a MyChart account, now would be a great time to get signed up. Visit MyChart on Asante.org and follow the prompts.
NOTE: If you’re just now signing up for MyChart, the assessment question may not appear right away, so check back later.
Eligible employees who have already completed a vaccine series and submitted the questionnaire should see the bonus on their April 16 paycheck. Each pay period we will review who has completed the vaccination series and questionnaire and include the incentive on those employees’ next paycheck.
What if I received the vaccination outside Asante?
It may take a few days for your health record to update, so please be patient with the process. We will be tracking all currently approved vaccinations: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.
What if I can’t get the COVID-19 vaccine?
We realize that some employees may not be medically able to receive the vaccination or have strongly held religious convictions that preclude you from receiving it. There is still a way for you to request the incentive.
If you have a religious exemption, email [email protected] with your reason or call
(541) 789-2168 or (541) 472-7614 and someone will discuss it with you to verify if you qualify.
If you have a medical/disability reason, email [email protected] or call Employee Health at (541) 789-3674.
If approved, you will be required to complete the “COVID-CASH” education module available in the ALEC/HealthStream course catalog.
